A SIR_JACK_A_LOT Christmas Carol - My magnum dong opus on turning $35K to $1.75M (50X) in less than a year

How I went from $35K to $1.75M (50X) in less than a year

Introduction

Ghosts of Christmas Past

Chapter 1: Crypto (2017-18)

How it all started... I threw every last dollar I had in ETH at $12 and swing traded a ton of shit coins and ICOs until it all came crashing down.

In short: turned $8K into $300K and back to $30k but owed the IRS ~$120K since all the gains were calculated at 2017-year-end. I royally fucked myself because I didn't set any money aside for taxes. Ended up in debt to some very bad people and things were very dark, I don't like to talk about this time in my life that much.

Chapter 2: WSB Tuition (2018)

First learned about WSB in 2018 from the infamous FB ER put play by /u/YungBillionaire turning ~$28K into $451K overnight. That sounded fun.

Quickly learned about options but most importantly about FDs, tendies, and the power of memes.

Back then it was all about trade wars and hanging at the whim of commander cheeto's supple tweets.

I have fond memories of:

  • Apparently the first stock I ever bought on Robinhood was HMNY... thanks Robinhood Recap for the reminder of my retarded-ness
  • Grew my first set of winkles on my smooth brain with AMC calls. The thesis was that their Stubs A-List subscription was doing pretty well according to /r/AMCsAList back then
  • Went all-in MTCH weekly puts with $12K clenching my stomach in the fetal position when all of a sudden there was a lawsuit and I tripled my account in minutes, pure luck

First reading of a Christmas Carol... turns out we're all Scrooge?

Ok I see from a search that this book is discussed often enough but I've really enjoyed properly reading the book this year & am really struck by the difference between what the book seems to intend and what adaptations often bring out as the main message -- as well as how Scrooge as a character is represented in society at large.

I doubt this is a very original observation but thought others might have thoughts to share anyway.

My impression is that films, and pop culture references, of Scrooge focus on his penny-pinching miserliness; in this interpretation Scrooge is a relatively singular figure that can't be generalised from -- his greed & disdain for love is cartoonish. "Don't be a Scrooge," we say, when somebody exhibits a particularly noticeable moment of bad cheer or, say, unwillingness to pay for their round.

In the book, though (and in certain adaptations like the 1999 Patrick Stewart version), it seems very clear that Dickens is not focusing on money-greed but money-logic.

Scrooge lets the logic of commerce distance himself from human experience and this is a warning to all of us most days.

What is scary is that modern society seems pretty completely structured around Scrooge logic now --- work or die, seek profit not friends, look after yourself with high defensive walls around you because the world is tough and you can't afford too much sympathy for others.

Worryingly, talk of 'surplus population' is at the top of the agenda these days --- kindly folk like David Attenborough are even suggesting it's the main cause of planetary collapse; a handy distraction from the real cause --- single-minded pursuit of profit. A Christmas Carol has long since shown us how sick this Malthusian logic is, how dangerous it is to focus on profit alone, but we persist in these misapprehensions.

If anything society is structured now to make us unconscious Scrooges, as well as deeply poor Scrooges. If you were poor in Victorian England you had little opportunity to reap the benefits of exploitation. In consumer society we Scrooge ourselves whenever we are temped by cheap goods on Amazon and order them to arrive within a handful of hours. We remain basically unwealthy, but can still exploit.

Doom shall come if we ignore ignorance, the Ghost of Christmas Present warns when he reveals the spectral children under his robe. Lack of awareness of how the world works is no excuse!

I think I read that Dickens was inspired to write a Christmas Carol after

UMF Carol Davila doreste sa mareasca taxa de studiu si sa elimine fizica de la admitere

Contextualizare: pe 18 ianuarie, la ora 20:45, membrii Senatului Universitar au primit un e-mail ce conține ordinea de zi și documentele pentru ședința programată pentru 21 ianuarie; temele controversate sunt: 1. creșterea cuantumurilor taxelor de școlarizare (15.000 RON - medicină, 10.000 RON - medicină dentară și farmacie, 6.000 RON - FMAM, 7.500 EUR - medicină în lb. engleză) începând cu anul universitar 2021-2022, pentru studenții care se înmatriculează începând cu anul universitar 2021-2022 (taxele studenților deja înmatriculați nu se vor modifica, din informațiile pe care le avem); „suprataxa” va avea valoarea de 15.000 RON, iar la această formă de finanțare vor fi acceptați studenții, pe baza unei cereri, în ordinea descrescătoare a punctajelor, în limita numărului de locuri aprobat de către Senatul Universitar - practic, locurile de la „suprataxă” reprezintă o majorare a numărului de locuri la taxă, devenind același lucru 2. eliminarea opțiunii de a susține proba opțională la disciplina „Fizică”, în cadrul concursului de admitere, începând cu admiterea din 2022 (biologie și chimie - medicină, medicină dentară, FMAM; chimie - farmacie)

Ma gandesc ca poate exista in grup persoane care se pregatesc pentru admiterea la aceasta universitate si consider ca ar trebui sa fie constiente de cele enuntate mai sus

[A Christmas Carol] The Three Ghosts never cared about Scrooge. They just wanted Tiny Tim to live.

I was thinking the other day "What if Tiny Tim was never sick?". If he wasn't then Scrooge wouldn't be fully motivated to change his ways.

So that makes me wonder if the Three Ghosts only visited Scrooge just to convince him to help the boy.

Think about it: Scrooge has enough money to help with Tiny Tim's medical needs but wouldn't do it in his original greedy state.

Knowing this, the ghosts of Past, Present, and Future (along with Jacob Marley) decided to make Scrooge change his views and fill him with good spirit so he'll happily pay Tiny Tim's way into recovery.

But what if Tiny Tim was never sick? Would the Three Ghosts even bother with Scrooge?

This makes me believe that they would just allow Scrooge to continue being his greedy self until he finally dies a hated and forgetful man because there was no sick kid in the equation to help him finally become a better man.

What do you guys think?
